Same thing is true for shirts.  Companies use cotton + synthetic blends to reduce the fabric cost.  High end shirts rarely include synthetic.  The < $10 tshirts at walmart are generally 60% cotton / 40% poly for a reason and its not because they wanted to make a superior product.

There may be some technical advantages to a synthetic blend in some cases, but thats like saying there are technical advantages to plastic linoleum flooring over porcelain tile or Pergo artificial wood flooring over real hardwood floors.  It may be true but the natural authentic versions are nevertheless far more desirable.

There's a whole lot of misdirection in your post.

You may appreciate 100% wool more than a blend, but are huge technical advantages to blends in certain situations. If I'm looking at a wool outer shirt for working outside on cold days, the wool/nylon blend would be more durable. A cotton/wool blend (I'm thinking Viyella or Pendleton's canterbury cloth) can be comfortable like cotton flannel with some of the technical characteristics of the wool fiber.

And yes, there are situations where all-synthetic materials are superior. For running (and other high output aerobic sports), I pretty much only wear synthetic or wool blend fabrics. I challenge you to compare the performance characteristics between a wool shirt and a wool-blend base layer shirt (Patagonia Merino 2 are the ones I've used).

For sitting around the office, or hanging out on the town; I won't argue form over function, as it doesn't matter what you wear. But if your life depends on what you're wearing, choose wisely...

Your personal preferences are not BS and I wasn't responding to you. The other post is just a train wreck of hyperbole, factual incorrectness, and poor reasoning.

You shut your mouth that other post is TIMELESS and CLASSIC.

The new double-pocket shirt design is pretty nice, and I do like the look without the aggressive scoops.  @joshgustin any plans to update the standard buttondown shirt design?

 

I'm wearing my #153 Super Heavy Chambray shirt today, which I LOVE the heavy/textured fabric, but for some reason the scoops bug the heck out of me today (wearing it untucked).  Might be the first Gustin shirt I take to my tailor.

I love the scoops since I only buy Gustin shirts to wear casually.

I wonder if they will offer specific fabrics per shirt style/model, or just offer X fabric and under size you select the shirt size and style/model.  

Being that a lot of fabrics would look great in both styles.  

 

 

The latter would make everyone happy, and fund shirting fabrics real quick.

I'm sure the custom textiles of say Stephan Schneider are inferior to your 100% wool. I'm also send a note to Margiela, Dior and Jil to stop using blends while I'm at it. satisfied.gif

I was thinking about that too, where having the shirt style/model as a dropdown option would be ideal.  Just not sure how that works in Gustin's business model & manufacturing, but would make the most sense for the customers

Ooh, another place for QC to screw up? :hide:

 

 

That said, I love the look of the new shirt style. Thanks for lisening @joshgustin!

 

 

In case you aren't on their mailing list, here are the pics from the email sent this morning.

I'm confused, isn't the purpose of the scoops to keep the shirts tucked in better? Or am i missing something?  Untucked & worn casually (for me) they are just too long.  I'll likely have my tailor cut some length, but it also could be bc i'm not the tallest guy (5'5" so maybe they're just longer on me).

post #7092 of 10340

Well if its the same factory and @ a very similar cost (which I would imagine it is) than it would make things easier on their end, at least I would think.   

 

Not to mention keep customers happier, more choice, fund items faster.   You see a fabric you like, buy it!  Don't wait until it comes back in your specific cut.
